Death of Nat Turner?

Item # 152752

October 29, 1831

NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore,  October 29, 1831  Page 2 includes a rather brief report headed "Gen. Nat" which reads: "It is believed that this distinguished leader of the blacks at the massacre in Virginia, was drowned, in attempting to cross New river. So says a letter to the governor of the state." This report proved to be untrue as he was hanged a month later for his role in the recent slave uprisings.
Complete in 16 pgs., measures about 6 1/2 by 9 1/2 inches, bit of minor wear, mostly nice.
